GOAL: The President is NOT above the law! Demand that your Members of Congress STOP putting Party before Country and uphold their constitutional duty in both the House and Senate by supporting the authorization of an INDEPENDENT COMMISSION and the appointment of a SPECIAL PROSECUTOR to oversee the investigation of Trump’s ties to Russia!

REASON: The 10 year term of an FBI director is to help ensure that the President of the United States does not operate above the law. Trump’s dismissal of Comey smacks of cover-up and raises serious alarm bells for our system of checks and balances!
If a foreign government illegally tried to influence American elections, this constitutes a grave threat to our voting rights, our civil liberties, and our national security. And if a presidential campaign coordinated with that foreign government, we should ALL be concerned!
NOTE: Congress has the power to create a special commission to conduct an independent investigation. They can also demand that Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein appoints a special prosecutor (someone who is out of the DOJ chain of command) to oversee the ongoing investigation of Russian meddling, issue subpoenas, etc! Congress should act immediately!
